I Do Not Concede! is the eleventh episode of Survivor: Ghost Island.

Previously on Survivor...

With the unexpected elimination of Melissa, Colin was left as the last Marau standing. As Colin wept, Alec and Hilbert kept their mouths shut, to avoid what people will say about them eliminating Melissa. Samantha was, surprisingly the only one, to be furious. She was upset that Alec and Hilbert left her because she lost her power.

At the reward challenge, the castaways were subjected to a majority rules competition. During the challenge it was obvious Samantha would not be winning, as she consecutively got her rope cut. Ultimately, Kenni won the reward and took Xane with her. The two enjoyed the classic Lord of the Flies and got to chow down on some snacks. When they got back to camp, Hilbert and Alec approached the two of them, wanting to join their alliance to get rid of Samantha. Both men suggested if Samantha won immunity, then Ashleigh would go. Both agreed, but decided that Alec and Hilbert were first to go if Samantha had immunity.

At the immunity challenge, the castaways had to build a fire high enough to burn through a rope. Although there were different approaches, Samantha won her third immunity in a row. At tribal council, Alec and Hilbert's reasoning for getting rid of Melissa was revealed. Though everyone in the Joint Alliance agreed Melissa could win, they believed she should still be in the game. Rebeckah and Colin even mentioned how much of an honor it was to play with Melissa. Despite their pleading, Alec was eliminated with five votes. Seven remain, who will be voted out tonight?

Night 30

Returning from tribal council, the tribe is silent going to camp. Samantha is happy, and Hilbert is upset about the vote.

Last night, one of my backstabbing allies, Alec, was eliminated. I am ecstatic about this. I don't care about Alec, he is nothing but a poser and a loser. As long as I've got immunity, I'm untouchable.


Alec was eliminated last night. If Samantha wins immunity, I'm screwed. She's gotta go. She's like an STD you live with everyday. Votes against her are like medicine.


After making a fire, the tribe gets some sleep for tomorrow.

Day 31

The next day, the Tekivu tribe receives tree mail. With the tree mail comes seven envelopes with the castaway's names on them. They are instructed to open the envelopes at the challenge site. The final seven go to the challenge area, where there is a bench, a table where Probst is and and gavel on the table.

Tekivu later returns to camp, and prepares a fire for boiling water. All of a sudden, Samantha begins to yell at Kenni.

Quote1You (bleep) (bleep). You stole my advantage from me!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Samantha, I got the advantage fair and square. You blew all your money on a mystery item. That's not my fault you did that.Quote2- Kenni
Quote1You all (bleep) conspired against me in that auction! I should've gotten the advantage! It is always a covered item!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Samantha, shut the (bleep) up! You are nothing but a spoiled brat! You're in a place where you're uncomfortable and you don't like it.Quote2- Rebeckah
Quote1You're (bleep) right I don't like it. When we're done with this game, you're all getting sued!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1On what grounds?Quote2- Xane
Quote1The grounds of conspiring against me! You (bleep) (bleep).Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Samantha, that is the lamest reason for someone to sue. It's Survivor. Everyone's conspiring against everyone.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1All of you will pay.Quote2- Samantha

Samantha leaves the camp and heads toward the rocky part of the beach.

I know that bitch Kenni stole my advantage. Advantage or not, I'm going to win. They'll be forced to go after one another it's perfect! *laughs evilly*


Day 32

Early in the morning, Samantha is up. She, within a few minutes, has a huge fire going. Samantha grabs both a bucket of water and the pot of rice and bean. She pours the entire pot of rice and beans into the fire. She quickly pours the water on the fire, putting it out and return the pot where it was, and goes back to the shelter.

If I'm going to leave, I'll go out with a bang. These people are my bitches. I will treat people like they're nothing and I'm fine with it.


Later in the morning, both Xane and Colin are up. Colin begins a fire while Xane is off to get water. Colin has the flame going within a minute or so, and Xane returns with water. Colin finds the pot, and opens it to find nothing. Rebeckah is up and by the fire by this point as well.

Quote1Xane, we have a problem, we have no rice.Quote2- Colin
Quote1You've got to be kidding. We had a little over a half a pot last night.Quote2- Xane
Quote1I'm not kidding.Quote2- Colin.

Colin hands over the empty rice container to Xane, who inspect it. Hilbert, Kenni, and Ashleigh come over to the fire pit.

Quote1Hey, guys. What's up?Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1We have no rice.Quote2- Xane.
Quote1What? I made rice last night. We still had a lot left over.Quote2- Kenni
Quote1Who would do such a thing?Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1I think I know. Samantha. She's usually up early in the morning, but I guess she had a late night since she's asleep.Quote2- Rebeckah
Quote1We still have the eggs from the hens. There'll probably be only a few though.Quote2- Colin
Quote1Hopefully we have enough fruit to last us the last couple of days.Quote2- Kenni
Quote1Well, me and Xane will check on the chickens while Kenni and Ashleigh check on the fruit supply. Rebeckah and Colin keep an eye on Samantha.Quote2- Hilbert

I cannot believe the nerve of Samantha. She disposed of the remaining rice supply we had. She needs to be punished, otherwise that self-righteous, self-centered bitch will keep acting this way.


Xane, Hilbert, Kenni, and Ashleigh check their food supplies. Rebeckah and Colin keep an eye on Samantha. A few minutes later, Hilbert and Xane return with a single egg. Ashleigh and Kenni return with disappointed faces.

Quote1All we found was a single egg. All the others disappeared.Quote2- Xane
Quote1All the fruit is gone. We have nothing to eat.Quote2- Kenni

Kenni begins to cry. Rebeckah comforts her and takes her away from the camp.

I cannot wait to vote Samantha out. She's nothing but a (bleep) who should be living with daddy rather than being out here.


Day 33

The next day, the Tekivu tribe receives tree mail, instructing them to go to the challenge site. The final seven arrive at the site, and Jeff explains the challenge.

Quote1Come on in guys! First things first, Samantha I gotta take the necklace back.Quote2- Jeff
Quote1We all know I gonna win this again.Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Once again, immunity is back up for grabs. Today, brace yourself between two walls while standing on tiny footholds above the ground. After 30 minutes, step down to smaller footholds. After one hour, step down to the smallest footholds, less than a quarter of an inch wide. Only arms and feet can touch the wall. Last one left wins. Kenni, you won an advantage in this challenge. Would you please read it.Quote2- Jeff
Quote1For this advantage, you get to join your comrades one hour in. If everyone is eliminated by that time, you win immunity.Quote2- Kenni
Quote1Everyone, but Kenni, let's get started.Quote2- Jeff

Everyone, execpt Kenni, who has a one hour advantage, is bracing themselves between two walls. The challenge begins.

Elapsed Time: 30 minutes

Thirty minutes have passed, and only Rebeckah is struggling. Rebeckah decides to drop out of the challenge.

Elasped Time: 1 hour

An hour has passed, Kenni begins the challenge, and everyone else shifts down a foot hold. Ashleigh's foot falls off the foot hold, eliminating her. Only five remain.

Elasped Time: 2 hours

Another hour has passed, and everyone, except Kenni who goes to the second foot hold, moves to the lowest foot hold. Everyone is still hanging on.

Elapsed Time: 2 hours 45 minutes

Fourty-five minutes have passed, and many are struggling. Colin is shaking tremendously. Samantha and Xane are shaking a little. Hilbert is struggling a little. Kenni is completely still. Colin shakes too much, causing his arm falls off one of the walls, and he falls. Colin is eliminated, and Four remain.

Elapsed Time: 3 hours 9 minutes

Twenty-four minutes pass, and Samantha and Xane are struggling a lot. Hilbert is struggling a bit more. Kenni is still not struggling. Xane falls, eliminateing him. Samantha also shakes tremendously, falling off. After it is announced Samantha is out, Hilbert is distracted and falls.

Quote1I won? I won immunity!Quote2- Kenni
Quote1Congratulations, Kenni you have a one in six chance of winning this game. I'll be seeing you a tribal council tonight, you can head back to camp.Quote2- Jeff

Tekivu returns to camp, Kenni is overjoyed with winning immunity. This causes Samantha to scramble.

Holy crap, I got immunity. This is exciting. I just slayed the dragon by winning this. The bitch is going home, which is a double bonus.


Samantha gathers up Colin, Ashleigh, and Hilbert.

Quote1Guys, I really need your help tonight. I'm voting Rebeckah tonight, but I need votes.Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Why do you want Rebeckah out so bad?Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1And on that same note, what about a revote?Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1I want Rebeckah out because she's the goat for Xane and Kenni. They're gonna get me and wipe the rest of you out. The revote won't matter, because I won't have a penalty vote for it. It'll be 3-2, and Rebeckah goes home.Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Ok.Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1Fine.Quote2- Colin
Quote1Alright.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1Thanks guys, you won't regret it!Quote2- Samantha

Samantha leaves the three of them and heads for the latrine. Colin, Ashleigh, and Hilbert continue talking.

Quote1She's so (bleep) delusional if she thinks we're voting with her.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1She is. She burned the rice and got rid of the remaining food supply we had.Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1She's done like dinner tonight, that two-faced bitch.Quote2- Colin

At sunset, Tekivu heads for the tribal council area. Upon arriving, everyone puts their torches behind them and take a seat. Danny, Shaniqua, Frank, Melissa, and Alec walk in the tribal council area, and take a seat on the jury bench. Alec is wearing a green t-shirt, a leather vest, blue denim jeans, and leather boots.

Quote1Introducing the members of the jury. Danny, Shaniqua, Frank, Melissa, and Alec voted out at the last tribal council. Last time, Samantha was in trouble, but got immunity, causing you to vote out Alec instead. Colin, is Samantha on the chopping block tonight?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1Nothing's changed at all. She's definitely on the chopping block tonight.Quote2- Colin
Quote1Kenni, can you shed some light on why Samantha is hated so much?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1She's a control freak. She freaked out after we built the shelter at Totolo. She ruled Totolo like an iron fist. She bitches about everything. And finally, she burned both the rice supply and got rid of the fruit we collected.Quote2- Kenni
Quote1Those are big reasons to get rid of her, but Hilbert, wouldn't with that kind of attitude, she'd be the perfect person to bring to the end?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1They are, but living with Samantha is like living in hell. Plus with her immunity track record, she's a challenge threat.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1Ashleigh, has there been any talk about getting anyone else out?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1There has, but I'm safe where I am.Quote2- Ashleigh
Quote1Xane, hearing this who do think the other person on the chopping block is?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1Possibly myself or Hilbert. We're the only two to have no votes, and we're definitely strong and smart people.Quote2- Xane
Quote1Rebeckah, you've received one vote at the past two tribals, any idea why?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1I'm not sure why someone would vote for me. I'm no challenge threat. I'm not a strategy bot. I have no sympathy story to give to the jury.Quote2- Rebeckah
Quote1You just said the reasons why someone would vote for you. Kenni and Xane are using you as a goat. Getting you out would be great.Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Hilbert, is Rebeckah a good person to get out tonight?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1No, she is not. Voting for some who you think is a goat is stupid. Samantha is just scrambling to save her ass.Quote2- Hilbert
Quote1Before we vote, Kenni are you going to give up your immunity?Quote2- Jeff
Quote1No.Quote2- Kenni
Quote1Alright, Asheligh, you are up.Quote2- Jeff

One by one, everyone on Tekivu votes. After the votes have been cast, Jeff goes and retrieves the urn.

Quote1If anyone has a hidden immunity idol, you may play it. Once the votes are read, the decision is final. The person voted out will be asked to leave the tribal council area immediately. Before we start, Samantha has her second penalty vote. We already have one vote Samantha. First vote, Samantha. Rebeckah. Samantha. Next vote, Samantha. That's four votes Samantha, one vote Rebeckah. Twelfth person voted out of Survivor: Ghost Island and the sixth member of the jury......

.....Samantha. Samantha, please bring up your torch.Quote2- Jeff

Quote1No. Impossible I had three other votes against Rebeckah!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Samantha you need to being up your torch, or we'll force you out of the tribal council area.Quote2- Jeff
Quote1I demand a recount!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Security!Quote2- Jeff
Quote1I do not concede! I DO NOT CONCEDE!Quote2- Samantha
Quote1Well a devil amongst you has been voted out. It appears everything will be smooth sailing. You can head back to camp.Quote2- Jeff

Security takes Samantha away. Jeff snuffs her torch, and Tekivu leaves for camp.

Voting Confessionals

Delusional piece of shit you are.


You rallied us together to vote Rebeckah. She's no threat to anyone. She's no goat either. SAmantha, good-bye.


Once an ally, now a raging bitch. You climbed down the ladder significantly.


I can't stand you anymore. Bye.


Voting for me is stupid. Voting for you is smart.


That was a good stunt to think Rebeckah is not going home tonight, guys.


Finally. I cannot stand you anymore. You're a (bleep) two-faced (bleep).
